While exploring the many wonders of Trinidad and Tobago, you’ll likely find gorgeous beaches and stunning colonial architecture everywhere you look! While it’s always great to have a variety of options, it can make it difficult to decide which ones you’d like to visit. Therefore, below is a narrowed list of the very best options you must visit to make the most out of your trip across the islands.
Maracas Bay Beach
On the northwestern coast of Trinidad, hidden behind mountainous rainforests you must cross in order to arrive, lies one of the most popular beaches on the island. Lined with palm trees to cast just the right amount of shade, you’ll love basking in the transparent waters and warm white sands. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the bake and shark; a popular fast food dish across the island consisting of shark meat, flatbread, and toppings. Pro tip:Hilton Trinidad Hotel offers taxis or car rentals to help you get to this hidden treasure of a beach.
Las Cuevas Beach
Las Cuevas beach is located just past Maracas Bay on the northern coast of Trinidad. What makes this hideaway so special is a collection of small caves that line the beach, giving beachgoers a place to escape the heat during the warmest months of the season. They’re also excellent for exploring, with or without children! This beach is quieter than most others on the island, so it’s excellent for a day of relaxation, making it the ultimate private vacation spot.
Blanchisseuse Beach, Trinidad
Also located on the north shores of Trinidad, Blanchisseuse Beach is known for its seclusion from the hustle and bustle of tourists and the mainland. This area of the country is more rural, giving it a more authentic feel than others. This beach is also known as a popular location for sea turtle nesting. Although they normally come out at night, keep an eye out for sea turtles while visiting this beach, but always remember to respect their nesting sites and stay away from them.
Englishman’s Bay Beach, Tobago
Just across the pond in Tobago, you’ll find Castara Bay on the northern coast in all of its wonder. Castara Bay is ideal if you love snorkeling. You’ll see right through the crystal waters to find a sea of coral and fish of all varieties, making it great for fishing as well. If you arrive on a Wednesday or Saturday, you’ll find local women selling delicious bread out of a clay oven. Talk about authentic!
Regardless of what beach you visit while in Trinidad and Tobago, you are greeted by adventure and relaxation alike. The hardest decision you’ll have to make during your stay is choosing which you’d prefer! Dip your toes into the warm sands that await you in the paradise known as Trinidad and Tobago.
